  1. OC Bus Spottings

    Spotted 8152 doing down near Glebe Collegiate. I only saw it from the side, thus I couldn't determine the route. It was around 8:20-8:30 AM. I am assuming a Moodie route.
  2. Misc. OC Transpo & STO Questions & Discussion

    I have a question regarding when the Classics got rebuilt. Why is it that most of the '93s stayed in the stripe livery, and only five were repainted? Did only the ones in the maple leaf livery get rebuilt? This also applies to most of the other Classics.
  3. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Ah, thanks for clarifying.
  4. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Forgive me for asking this, but why does TTC keep the old livery on some buses after they get rebuilt, and repaint others in the new livery? Let's take the 1200-1423 series of hybrids, for example. Half were repainted into the new livery and rebuilt, and the other half were rebuilt, but repainted back into the old livery instead.
  5. OC Bus Spottings

    Forgot to post: 6613 was being towed yesterday at 12:25 PM. It was going down Baseline, close to the Wal-Mart there.
  6. Fare changes for 2018

    My bad, typo. I was half asleep when I wrote that and didn't pay attention. Corrected.
  7. Duplicate accounts

    I agree with you. It seems that he manages to find a way back on here each time. One of his accounts have been banned, as I have reported it. As for the other ones that I reported, some are still on here and active as of now. It's about time the admins made some changes. Even an IP ban isn't foolproof, because he can get a VPN. We know it's not working because he seems to have made around ten accounts (I have lost count of this guy's accounts at this point)... Reporting is not going to work, as he will come back. The admins could try stricter requirements for being a member on here, and it may or may not work. This guy has got to go. He already proved how immature he is by making that many accounts. If he was mature, he would have not created another account. He's making this board go even more downhill. Instead, he's just trying to create as many accounts on here as he can. His posts have been blatantly not true, such as saying that TTC 8573 was sent out, when in reality, it was in an accident. He backtracked when he said that he didn't say anything about 8573. He also said he saw a retired scrapped bus going down a highway, which I got one of his accounts banned for that. So there's pretty much no way of getting rid of him, for now. I have sent complaints to the admins numerous times, however the issue is still going on with him. He has made it REALLY obvious that it's him, because He Still Types Like This. The false sightings are another giveaway. The fact that this guy uses TTC buses as his background or avatar photos also gives us a clue. If he was playing smart, he would have at least changed his posting style, change the photo to something not TTC, and he would have had a lesser chance of being caught. I have messaged an admin, hopefully we'll have a solution to this. EDIT: A.Wong has messaged me saying thanks for the heads up. He has enabled admin approval for all new registrations.
  8. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    The ones in the old livery are 9117, 9204, 9216, 9401, 9403, 9411, 9419, 9421, and 9516. The ones in the new livery are 9108, 9114, 9512, and 9519. *9117 and 9216 have white fronts, but the body is still in the original livery.
  9. OC Bus Spottings

    5117 (white wrap) was on the 112 today, at around 8:55 this morning.
  10. General WTF Moments

    This happened back in spring, when I didn't join yet. I was walking outside, and I suddenly see a car facing the opposite direction on a road, with the driver inside. Everyone else was honking at them as soon as they passed by. How he did that, I don't know. I didn't see what happened before. Fortunately, there were no accidents.
  11. STO bus spottings

    I created a STO Classic thread that has the list of remaining Classics. You can go look there if you want to. So far, there's 23 different Classics that have been spotted. This includes the remaining Classics, as well as every single one that has been spotted.
  12. Transit Related Dreams

    This was another recent dream. I had just exited my school. I was waiting at my bus stop, and suddenly, I see a OC NovaBus Classic with a bike rack on it (in the older livery). It was a 176, and I rode it home. That's where the dream ended.
  13. Regrets in transit fanning

    Not riding the remaining STO Classics when I was able to. Due to some medical reasons I'm not getting into, my doctor has advised me to avoid buses for a little while. By the time I recover, it'll be way too late to ride one. At least I rode a OC Transpo Classic, though... I also spotted lots of them, at least.
  14. Own any bus

    If I were to get one of the active TTC buses, it'd either be a OG diesel/hybrid, or an NG below 8219. The newer 8300's have really ugly backs.
  15. Fare changes for 2018

    OC Transpo has raised the cash fare by 10 cents, from $3.40 to $3.50. Tickets are no longer sold, but are still valid until April 30, 2018. Adult monthly passes go from $113.75 to $116.50. The EquiPass (pass for low-income riders) is going to cost $58.25, an increase of $1.25 over last year.
